What You Can Do
As a not-for-profit organization, we need your support to continue to provide amazing experiences for our community. There are many ways that you can contribute to TELUS Spark, with each and every way ensuring that our culture of curiosity, innovation, and collaboration exists for years to come.
You can become a volunteer, and lend your skills and expertise to make learning opportunities more meaningful. As a sponsor, organizations and corporations contribute immensely towards making our programs possible and our space a welcome place for Southern Albertans. And, by making a donation, your impact as a donor is widespread throughout our organization. Donations allow us to rise to new challenges for the better of our community. In particular, we highly appreciate support for our Community Access program. This program opens our doors to 10,000+ people every year who may not have been able to visit otherwise.
You can also enhance our revenue streams by becoming a member, or by hosting your next event at our building. Our full-service events team can transform the science centre into the ideal place to host birthday parties, team builders or other corporate events.
As a not-for-profit organization, TELUS Spark’s volunteers play an integral role in every aspect of the organization. Volunteers have the wonderful opportunity to learn about the world and community around them. You gain valuable experience, which can be applied to other situations, such as future employment or other volunteer opportunities.
We have volunteer opportunities available to individuals who are sixteen or older. Volunteering with us is exciting, fascinating, interesting and a great way to explore potential career options or to give back to your community. Our annual volunteer celebration during Volunteer Week is just one of the many benefits we like to offer our volunteers as a token of our appreciation.

Curiosity is vital in harnessing the creativity and innovative thinking that each of us possesses.
